Summary

We are seeking views on data sharing between DWP and local support providers.

This consultation ran from
to

Consultation description

This consultation asks for views on the draft regulations which amend the Social Security (Information-sharing in relation to Welfare Services etc.) Regulations 2012. These allow information to be shared between DWP and local support providers, specifically local authorities, citizens advice bureaux, credit unions, social landlords and relevant registered charities.

The information shared will enable local support providers to identify Universal Credit claimants who need assistance, advice and support and to ensure that support is in place.

The proposed changes will come into force in February 2015 and will be implemented from March 2015.

We would be interested in views from any source and particularly welcome comments on the draft regulations from:

  • local authorities
  • social landlords
  • charities
  • money advice providers
  • other third parties active in the provision of local support services
  • Universal Credit claimants
